DOLLY PARTON ENDS PARTNERSHIP TO DEVELOP NEW NASHVILLE THEME PARK
Our little hearts have been broken again, over a theme park that was promised to us, then snatched away. Dolly Parton says she's out of the theme park deal: no water and snow park for Nashville. She says the original agreement was made before Gaylord entered into a new deal with Marriott International. Dolly says just as Gaylord "makes decisions they feel are good for their company and their stockholders" she also has to "make decisions based on what is best" for her and for her company.

AMBER ALERT FOR TWO MISSING KIDS, BUT FOUL PLAY NOT SUSPECTED
Even though there's am Amber Alert for two missing Bedford county kids, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says they don't think foul play is involved and they don't believe the childrens' parents had anything to do with their disappearance. Officials are looking for nine-year-old Chloie and seven-year-old Gage, who were initially thought to have died in last week's house fire that killed their grandparents. TBI says they just can't find the kids. We'll post their descriptions on the mix929.com NEWS page.
MAN INDICTED ON STUDENT LOAN FRAUD
A grand jury in Pennsylvania is indicting a man on charges he took out student loans to buy drugs, jewelry, tattoos and vehicles. Robert Price Jr., may end up spending 20 years in prison for loan fraud. He spent more than 90-thousand dollars between 2005 and 2007.
MULTIPLE ACCIDENTS THIS MORNING BECAUSE OF RAIN
Please remember that when we get rain here in Davidson county, water ponds or puddles on the interstates, so when you hit it, if you're going too fast, it can send you hydroplaning into the next lane. There are certain places where it always happens including at least one place under an overpass on I-440. I'm sure you've found some on your ride in. And if somebody tailgates you, trying to get you to go faster, the Tennessee Highway Patrol says just maintain your safe speed, and let them go around you. There are always accidents when it rains, and it's almost always from people driving too fast, and losing control.
VOTING MACHINE ISSUES CAUSED BY INACCURATE PROGRAMMING
We now know what caused the recent voting machine problems in Davidson county: not the machines themselves, but rather human error. The vendor programmed the poll books for a closed primary instead of an open one. In an open primary, which is what we have here in Tennessee, you can vote for either party. The Election Commissioner says the software has been changed to keep the problem from happening again, but we won't be using the electronic voting machines in next month's election.
TITANS LOST TO HOUSTON SUNDAY
The Tennessee Titans lost , 38-14 to the Houston Texans yesterday. During the game, Titans quarterback Jake Locker injured his shoulder, and had to leave the field. This is his second injury this season, and officials say it's questionable whether he'll be back. The Titans now have 1 win and three losses for the season. (They play again Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. )
TODDLER FOUND AFTER WANDERING DOWN BUSY HIGHWAY AT NIGHT
In Wisconsin, A 2-year-old boy is safe after he was found wandering on a dark dangerous highway all by himself. While his dad was sleeping, the toddler managed to get OUT of the house, and walked down the highway, wearing his little Superman jammies. Luckily, a man and his daugter saw the toddler. The guy says, "At first I thought it was a raccoon but it was too big to be a raccoon. I slammed on the brakes, turned around and pulled him into the car. The sheriff's department says it was an honest mistake and they don't plan to charge the dad.
COUPLES WHO SHARE CHORES MORE LIKELY TO DIVORCE?
Some people are SHOCKED over a story that came out this weekend... that says couples who share chores evenly are 50% MORE likely to divorce! But, it makes sense if you think about it. It's because in those cases, the woman usually has her own job and her own money. She's less dependent on the man to pay her bills. (In the homes where women do most of the housework, they often don't have an outside job, or money to leave.)
TEN-YEAR OLD FACES AUTO THEFT CHARGES
Here's why you don't leave your keys in the car! In Philadelphia, a guy was unloading furniture at a store, so he has his van parked out front, keys in the ignition, and a ten-year-old boy jumps in and starts driving. Of course, he didn't drive very well. He sideswiped four parked cars, and crashed into the fifth, stopping his little spree.
BIEBER THROWS UP ON STAGE
Justin Bieber has proven he's one tough little dude! He's an hour into his concert, his first of the new "Believe" tour, and he suddenly wheeled around, doubled over, threw up, and scurried off stage. Justin apparently was really sick, losing it twice during his set. Each time his fans sat there wide-eyed and concerned, but then he'd charge back onstage to their screams and applause, and sing some more. Bieber not only finished the show, but came back and did an encore.
JURY DEADLOCKS IN CASE AGAINST WOMAN TRYING TO KILL SON
